Notable poets like H.W. Longfellow and William Shakespeare have been aspired to write poems revolving around the topic ‘rainy day’. They often find a spark of light in this weather which help them right undeviating pieces.

I often face a quandary as to what is so eclectic in this atmosphere. I guess after recalling those catchy memories of mine I may have finally found a suitable answer to my query.

Before its rejuvenating arrival, a petrichor smell entices the environment, the long – awaited droplets strike the window, leaving a blurry photographic effect. In no time the torrential rain inundates the streets. Crystal clear droplets accumulating on the surface of the leaves not only refreshes them but also reveals an artistic view.

The numerous minute droplets leave behind a cooling temperature. Relishing this mystical atmosphere by sitting under the shed on the terrace which often welcomes inhospitable rain drops during heavy downpour and savoring ‘halwa’ and ‘papad’, is what makes my day.

So I guess, there is an enchanting connection between poetry and rain.
